Mosaic is the medium of my creating and I work to master it for its own sake. I strive to create work that can best be communicated through the language of mosaic—work that is uniquely mosaic and would not be as successful in any other medium.
I primarily work abstractly as I feel this allows me to more fully exploit the nature of both the medium and the materials. Through their unique characteristics of texture, color, and reflection, the materials are inspiration for my creativity as much as they are its vehicle.
While my execution techniques are grounded in traditional methods and tools, my work is contemporary and exploratory. It usually takes months for me to create a mosaic. I am aware of and open to the energies and conditions in the present moment as I create. In this way, I feel that each work is reflective of a time lived during its creation.
